Dental treatment for weight loss

Dental Jaw wiring is one of the smart device for weight loss, very simple procedure, well tolerated and performed in less than 40 minutes. In fact, it is not even a surgical procedure. But it is a possible treatment for obesity and compulsive eating. This can be performed at any place; it is considerably much cheaper than any other surgeries as well as having zero risks. The goal of this jaw wiring method of weight control is to prevent the consumption of solid food, thus causing a drastic reduction in calorie intake. Once the required weight loss is achieved, the wiring is removed and the patient is free to eat normally. 
                              How does it work?

Orthodontic jaw wiring is a method for treating compulsive overeating and obesity. The jaw wiring apparatus comprises orthodontic brackets attached to the teeth, with wire wrapped around or through the brackets. The brackets and wires are arranged in such a way as to suspend the patient’s lower jaw in a semi-closed, partially movable resting position. This permits a moderate amount of physiologic jaw movement and person resumed to normal activities and could speak normally. while preventing the eating of solid foods.

            How Is Jaw Wiring Performed?

No anesthesia is needed due to the absence of pain or discomfort. To begin with, the teeth are cleaned. Then brackets are bonded onto the upper and lower teeth, usually 3 teeth on the upper right and 3 teeth on the upper left and the same for the lower jaw. After this, thin wire is used to connect the brackets and keep the upper and lower jaws in position. The upper and lower teeth do not touch; they are wired to allow a gap between them. The wires are removed every 4-6 weeks, and typically most patients finish treatment within 6 months.

Jaw wiring technique induces major weight loss without serious complications. This method is one of the popular ways for weight loss in United States and other western countries, practicing from past 50 years. Clinical trails conducted and collected data

Effect of acids on teeth:

Consumption of citrus fruits, tomatoes, pickles and tea, can cause erosion of  enamel
due to it’s high acid content .

erosion of enamel will leave dentin.. the  next layer of enamel un protected
causing dental sensitivity to agents like cold, hot ,chemical and pressure.

Which is the best tooth paste available in the market?

All commercial tooth pastes are same. You can use any of them.
Tooth brush plays more vital role  in brushing than tooth paste.
Paste acts as only a lubricant for tooth brush to clean your teeth.
i.e why it is brushing and not pasting.

Select a  proper tooth brush based on the condition of your teeth & gums.
For tender gums & sensitive teeth use smooth bristle brush.
With moderate conditions use medium type.
Do not use hard brush as it could damage your gums and teeth
